Minority Studies/Marginalized Populations Studies


Dr. Daisy Tam, Department of Humanities and Creative Writing


Minority Studies/Marginalized Populations Studies focuses on a wide variety of minority groups (ethnic, religious, sexual, linguistic), and explores how an understanding of issues relating to minority identity, well-being, and forms of cultural production can contribute to the empowerment of such communities within mainstream society. Examples of broad areas of interest within this sub-theme include self-representation in minority literatures, healthcare communication in ethnic minority contexts, and minority rights.
